Rochdale midfielder Jason Taylor is available again following his three-match suspension.
Centre-half Craig Dawson and midfielder Joe Thompson will both be hoping to feature as Rochdale close in on their first promotion since 1969.
Torquay manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Devon: "Rochdale are by far the best team we've played, with goal threats all over the pitch when they've got the ball.
"It's down to us to be solid when we haven't got it and then we can cause teams problems.
"It's about being positive, we know we're playing against a very good team, and we'll have to be at our very best to win the game."
